What is a Wakeboard Rocker Line?
When it comes to purchasing your first, or next, wakeboard it can often be quite overwhelming with so many different options to choose from. This comprehensive guide will walk you through some of the core differences in the different types of wakeboard rockers. The wakeboard rocker is essentially the contour of the bottom of the board. When looking at rocker lines there are 3 main types that people tend to run across. These types include continuous, 3-stage, and hybrid.

3-Stage Rocker Wakeboards
Now that you have seen what the continuous rocker has to offer, lets go over what a 3 Stage wakeboard rocker is and has to offer. The 3 Stage wakeboard rocker was initially developed when wakeboarding wakes started to get bigger. This rocker type provides more pop off the wake than a traditional continuous rocker, which makes it extremely ideal for riders who prefer wake to wake style tricks. The downside of this type of board is it's speed. Due to the shape, a 3 Stage rocker has less surface area in contact with the water, which makes it rider a little bit slower. Some of the 3 stage wakeboards that we love are the Ronix Vault and Slingshot Pill. Both of these boards are geared towards boat riders and can accommodate intermediate to advance riders.
